On Tuesday 20 October the CLP Selection Committee hosted an online meeting for our members in the new Penzance East Division to select a candidate for next year’s Cornwall Council Election.
We only had the one candidate, the incumbent councillor Cornelius Olivier.
He made an eloquent and passionate statement and answered questions from the committee and the floor. He was selected unanimously.
The virtual meeting couldn’t have happened without the hard work of Secretary Joan Beveridge and Vice Chair Nicole Broadhurst and the good-natured forbarance of the committee (Nick Round, Pat Hammond and Jonty Lees), the candidate and members.
